Aassalamualaikum. Strange that you didn't took Islam seriously. Converts are generally very serious about their religion. If you had the courage to accept Islam in the first place (especially after 9/11), I don't see why you should be scared reading the Qur'an. May be you should ask yourself. Is it your conscience that's haunting you in your sleep? Try to find out. The Qur'an is the Furqan, that is it separates the truth from the falsehood. Ask yourself, are you afraid of the truth? Truth is not always very nice. Life is not a bed of roses.
Regarding interpretation, every group will claim that their interpretation is correct. You read the qur'an yourself and make your own decision.
Yes, female circumcision is a cultural thing. There is no law in Islam which says females should have circumcision. Only male circumcision is allowed.

May Allah guide you and give you the courage to accept the truth.

The world is a dangerous place to live in, not because of the bad people, but because of the good people who does not do anything about it.
